DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 July 1847
DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. &nbsp; &nbsp; (From our Correspondent.) James Graham, so well known as a carrier, ap- peared before the Bench on warrant, to answer the charge of Mr. William Handcock, storekeeper, for uttering a forged order, purporting to have been drawn by Mr. David Forbes on Robert Graham and Co., of Sydney. The document was an original one for £1 5s. 6d., very clumsily al- tered to £4 5s. 6d. ; the only criminating evidence was that of Mr. Handcock, founded upon the com- munication he had received from Sydney on the subject. The prisoner in his defence stated that he had received the order some time back from a Mrs. Wells, then residing at Major Innes' station, but now at the Springs, in payment of goods he had sold her, that he had given her small orders in change, but that there still remained a balance of fifteen shillings due by him on the transaction. The case was remanded to the 30th instant, to allow of the attendance of Mrs. Wells, and the...

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 July 1847
COLONIAL ABSTRACT. There have been sixteen,desertions lately from the detachment of the ááth Regiment, at Mel- bourne, m consequence of the present high rates of wages.-It is said that the new Squatting Re- gulations have caused sheep to advance one-third in value throughout the district of Port Phillip, It is calculated that 40,000 wild dogs have been destroyed in Port Phillip since tho formation of the colony,-Mr. Foster, the member tor Port has become the purchaser of Tally-ho, at the price of £45.-The transportation question was exciting a good deal of discussion in Van Diemen's Land in consequence of a circular addressed by Sir Win, Donnison to the influential colonists, with a view to elicit their individual opinions for or against transportation. The anti-transportation feeling seems the stronger of the two : but there are many colonists of decided respectability who do not ad- vise the abrogation oí the system.
NEW ZEALAND. (From the Wellington Independent, May 29.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 July 1847
NEW ZEALAND. (From the Wellington Independent, May 2d.J H.M. War Steamer Inflexible, Capt. Hoseason, arrived in port yesterday from Auckland, via Wanganui, with His Excellency Governor Grey, Lady, and suite on board.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 July 1847
DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. fFrom our Correspondent.), No business was transacted in our Police Court on Wednesday week last, in consequence of the non-attendance of a second Magistrate, Dr. Dor sey only being present, although there was a re- manded case of forgery, in which the party ac- cused, who was out on bail, had to travel from his residence at Brisbane. There were also two cases under the Master and Servants' Act, in which the complainants had to attend at very great incon- venience. This is not as it should be ; the in- terests and convenience of the public ought to be considered hy the Justices. These gentlemen should bear in mind that in accepting their honorary office other considerations than merely being enabled to write J. P. after their names ought to actuate them ; and that it is as incumbent on them diligently to perform the duties of Magi- strates as any other of their relative obligations. Before this Court was established, some were sceptical enough to supp...

CORONERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 July 1847
CORONERS. WE are glad to' find Jthat Government has proposed to make provision for the appointment of Coroners in all the dis- tricts within the boundaries of location. His Excellency, in his Financial Minute, states-" This will involve an additional expenditure of about £250, being at the rate of £20 for each coroner. The fees and travelling expenses which are now payable to magistrates for inquiries into the cause of sudden death, will" be avail- able for the further remuneration of the coroners, without, of course, entailing ad- ditional expense on the public, beyond that already stated. It is hoped that this arrangement, by bringing into operation the intervention of a juiy, and the laws relating to inquests, will be an improve- ment in the administration of this impor- tant branch of public justice.". Twenty-six additional Coi oners will have to be ap- pointed for the Police Districts, should the Council agree to the Governor's proposal.

THE áíH o r 11 o n Ban Countc. ., SATURDAY, JULY 17, 1847. '"> THE NEW BANK REGULATIONS.' .ONE of the great causes of the prosperity of all commercial towns in this colony is the abundance of negotiable securities that form the curiency oi the districts in which those towns are .situated ; and it is not go- ing too far to say that without coin or bank notes no solid wealth can be accumulated. It is, moreover, absolutely impossible for persons engaged in commerce to compete with their distant neighbours in the same colony unaided by paper money. Look- ing back on the low condition of this fine district, as far as agriculture and trade generally are concerned, nothing is more certain than that its progress has 'been mainly retarded by the incessant drain of nearly all its circulating medium by Sydney merchants and agents. It is this that paralyses our energies and impedes our advancement. Opened for location to free settlers, as this district was, at a period when the colony was in...
